BIOG

Nick T is acclaimed by many as one of this country's finest solo artists notorious for blistering guitar pyrotechnics.

 

Now based in sunny Torbay, Nick T has many years of experience playing all over the world and has become one of the most highly respected & accomplished guitar / vocalists in the country being called upon for occasional studio session work by the famous

 'Dean St. studios' in London.

 

Nick is popular with audiences for his guitar skills, notably the 'teeth' trick which can be seen on the  'Comfortably Numb' video on the 'Audio / Video' page.


The lively electric set caters for most tastes with a large repertoire of songs from 50's Rock & Roll, right through to the present.

Combined with the new laid back acoustic performance this makes Nick the perfect solo choice for any event.

 

The live sound is of a very high quality and he believes in using only self created backing tracks to stand out from the crowd.
  
Nick also creates backing tracks for many other artists worldwide including some for  www.musicbackingtracks.co.uk  

Many of these tracks are commissioned by a well known karaoke backing company. 

There is a sample compilation of some of the solo tracks on the 'Audio / Video' page.

 

Guitars are a passion for Nick and he offers a guitar repair / set-up service and very fine individually hand made Acoustic guitars.

TESTIMONIALS

Hi Nick

We had a great weekend in Brixham meeting up with old friends that we hadn't seen for over four years. Your performances were just as we remembered. It was great to see and hear you again. Your 'Comfortably Numb' remains an awesome experience for the listener. Its amazing how an entire audience stops talking and just listens!!! Like I said .. AWESOME

Nick Tilley is one of my favourite acts - He plays a lively electric guitar set that would pack any venue and his acoustic set is a lesson in what solo players should be able to do! He's a pleasure to work with.

Hi Nick

Thanks so much for the superb playing you did at my Birthday party! What an amazing talent you have - just incredible guitar and a fantastic voice too! I had lovely comments during and after the event, and as you know you certainly got everyone up dancing! Thanks also for playing my personal faves, which were just as good as the originals... :-). I would have no hesitation in recommending you for parties or events, and keep yourself free for next year!
